In an announcement that took everyone by surprise, LEGO will officially resurrected from the vault the LEGO Creator Taj Mahal!
That’s right. The once ‘largest’ LEGO set ever produce is getting a 2017 release in the form of LEGO Creator Taj Mahal (10256).
The new Taj Mahal has a piece count of 5923 which is just one more element more than the original one released in 2008 (most likely due to the inclusion of the Brick separator).
The set will be on sale during Cyber Monday, November 27th for a reasonable price of £299.99 / $369.99 / 329.99€.
There is no Singapore price point yet but it is estimated to be around the SGD$500 mark.
The Singapore recommended retail price (RRP) is listed at SGD$499.90 which is actually comes up to $0.08 cents per piece. It gets even lower if you apply the LEGO Certified Store member discount.
